Ingredients

FOR THE BUTTERNUT SQUASH

FOR THE QUINOA

FOR THE TAHINI DRESSING

  • ½ cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • lemon juice to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • pepper to taste
  • water as needed

FOR THE SALAD

  • 4 cups kale shredded
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • lemon wedges, pepper for serving.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add butternut squash, olive oil, smoked paprika, oregano, salt & pepper to the baking sheet and toss to coat evenly. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes (flipping halfway).
  • To make the quinoa, add the water to a pot and bring to a boil. Rinse the quinoa. Add the bouillon (or a pinch of salt if you aren't using bouillon) to the boiling water followed by the rinsed quinoa. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat and simmer until all of the liquid has been absorbed.
  • To make the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Add water until desired consistency is reached. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • To marinate the kale, combine the kale, avocado and a pinch of salt & pepper to a bowl. Use your (clean) hands to mash the avocado into the kale. Once combined, place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • To assemble, add a layer of kale to each bowl. Top the kale with some red onion, quinoa, butternut squash and a drizzle of dressing. Serve with lemon wedges and black pepper.
